Ubuntu 16.04 isn't prompting for my luks password. I pressed ctrl+alt+F1, and the output says "Volume group ubuntu-vg not present."

Of course not! I haven't been asked for my password! ubuntu-vg doesn't appear until sda5 is decrypted!

How do I get luks to ask for a password?

  • Will someone please answer this? I have encountered this problem many times and have always had to spend hours of fruitless googling before coming to an obscure solution and then forgetting the result by the next time the problem manifests. Apr 19 '17 at 15:23
